Are these all the same 4 O'Clock seeds but just with different names from different sellers? They all look alike in the pictures. Broken Colors, Kaleidoscope, and Stars and Stripes.

Kaleidoscope, from the picture I have on the seed packet, is more of a stripy color mixture on the flowers where Broken Colors has more blocks of colors on the flowers. So if the Kaleidoscope flower packet picture is correct, they are different from each other. I do not know about Stars and Stripes.

a picture of Stars and stripes is at Pinetree Garden Seeds, #65702 and it looks real similar to broken Colors.
Sounds like a good project for me next year -- order some seeds of both and compare ;)
Now that you mention it, I can see the difference in pictures between Broken Colors and Kaleidoscope.
